Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Also playing in the league are coaches from other sports. There’s a golf coach whose play — as you would expect — is head above heels over the rest of the crowd; a couple of soccer coaches who have great foot wedges; a swim coach who can hit a ball sitting 4 feet underwater; and an art teacher who draws conclusions about how good his opponents are. There’s also the drama coach who thinks every putt he makes will win the U.S. Open.

And then, there’s Dave and me — the new guys on the block. Dave is a good golfer. But me? Not so much. There’s little doubt these guys will take me to school and teach me a lesson in the process. I’ve just got to stay away from those killer 15-yard penalties.

Finally, on a positive note: I know quite a few of the players in this teachers’ league already, and I’m happy to report ... they’ve all got class.

And, for now, that’s the way it looks from the Valley.
